GTKY: What's your strangest unpopular opinion, or the one you get the most grief over?
Baby is the size of a(n): Baseball glove
Any appointments? Questions?: OB appointment on Tuesday, but that's it. Question: anyone else dealing with restless leg syndrome??
Rants/Raves?: Mostly raving at the moment! I have clearly started nesting and my version of it means tackling all of the reorganizing projects in my house and throwing out/donating a lot of stuff; I haven't started washing the baby clothes that we already have but I HAVE cleaned out and reorganized my kitchen and laundry room over the last 2 weekends so I'm feeling very accomplished after weeks of not being able to do much.
How are you feeling?: Still pretty good, thankfully. I'm getting a bit uncomfortable but only because our guy has grown and gotten stronger over the last few weeks so his stretching and rolling is starting to hurt a bit more...but it's for a good reason so I'm not complaining! I seriously wish I could see what he's doing in there lol
GTKY: What's your strangest unpopular opinion, or the one you get the most grief over? I hate Seinfeld. HATE. IT. They're all so annoying. Sadly my H loves the show...it's a real point of contention in our house!
Baby is the size of a(n): Apparently today it weighs as much as a large bottle of Listerine, but I have a feeling this babe I'm growing passed that milestone weeks ago 😂
Any appointments? Questions?: Seeing my OB on Thursday. Hopefully it's less chaotic than the last appointment (student doctor + student midwife + me, fiance & OB was a bit intense).
Rants/Raves?: My fiance is coming home on the 17th of April and I'm super keen but also a little bit bummed that he's not working Easter cause the public holidays meant his pay for that week would have doubled & we could really use the money! Oh well, it'll be fabulous to have him home and it means he can help me finally get the nursery ready! Another rave: 8 business days of work left!
How are you feeling?: Feeling the best I've felt all pregnancy, though the uncomfortableness & lack of sleep may wear thin soon! I feel lmcw on the kicks getting much stronger. My whole belly shakes and wobbles 90% of the day now which is pretty distracting, especially when trying to sleep haha
GTKY: What's your strangest unpopular opinion, or the one you get the most grief over? I honestly can't think of one that isn't politically motivated and I don't really want to share that because I don't think this is the place for politics haha. I'll keep thinking on it.
Baby is the size of a(n): weighs as much as a trumpet 🎺
Any appointments? Questions?: Hematologists appointment on Wednesday and that’s when I get my first dose of the Iron IV. Then directly afterwards I have to see my OB.
Rants/Raves?: My rant is not pregnancy related. Had an issue with my iPad not working after switching cellular providers (Fiancé put me on his plan). From contacting the previous cellular provider to the new one as well as Apple, it was a complete nightmare. Ended up just taking the iPad off the account and we’re just going to use it with WiFi or tether it off a hotspot via cellphone. Sometimes technology just sucks. So I totally feel you on the messed up WiFi issues @lmcw
Fiancé finally got the floors cleaned in the nursery so I’m able to move things back in and start the nesting process. I got a lot of sample items from Amazon and Target for their baby welcome box so I’ll be organizing those. Amazon gave me a bunch of sample baby detergent so I’m able to wash little babes clothes.
How are you feeling?: Feeling quite alright minus the left hip pains. It’s been crazy to see my bump move while he kicks/punches. There was one time this past week that I felt it on both sides of the bump at the same time. He must’ve been stretching or something. It was a wild feeling for sure.
GTKY: What's your strangest unpopular opinion, or the one you get the most grief over? I haven’t watched a lot of movies that people say you should watch or should have watched at some point in life. I am a part of a discord for Pokémon Go (how my fiancé and I met) and they give me grief over not ever watching (for example) the princess bride, among other popular classic movies.
Baby is the size of a(n): zucchini
Any appointments? Questions?: Not until next week.
Rants/Raves?: I had to let my boss know I have to leave work a few minutes early tomorrow and she gave me a hard time about it...again. I was sick one day a couple weeks ago, and I had to leave like 20 minutes early for a doctor appointment last week. Now I feel like she is so frustrated with me and she gives me a hard time every time I go in to talk to her about anything. It's so frustrating. I can't wait for spring break next week! Rave-The countdown to moving is on! We close on both houses next week, and will move next week.
How are you feeling?: I haven't been sleeping well. I fall asleep fine, then wake up around 2 or 3 and can't get back to sleep for 1-2 hours.
GTKY: What's your strangest unpopular opinion, or the one you get the most grief over? I have no idea!
@lmcw I'm the same way! I am not a Seinfeld fan, but my husband absolutely loves it. I guess that could be my unpopular opinion- I don't like a lot of the shows he loves.
Baby is the size of a(n): zucchini
Any appointments? Questions?: U/S this Friday to make sure she is growing well. I measured my fundal height at home last Friday and grew 2cm, so I’m not too worried and just excited to see her. I’ll still be relieved when they tell me everything is perfect tho... 😎
Rants/Raves?: Eh not much, just hoping time continues to go by fast
How are you feeling?: pretty well, tossing and turning more and more.
GTKY: What's your strangest unpopular opinion, or the one you get the most grief over? Pre-pregnancy I would have said that my most unpopular opinion was that desert was highly overrated. I now fully appreciate the deserts 😂
Baby is the size of a(n): Loaf of Wonderbread today!
Any appointments? Questions?: I have to travel this week, so my GD appointment was moved up to Wednesday. Not excited to start pricking my finger sooner, but it will be good to start testing and monitoring sooner.
I also meant to ask my OB last week, but baby girl’s growth has slowed a little bit, I think. She went from measuring a week head to half a week behind, but my OB rounded up this week, so maybe they’ve rounded up in precious weeks? 🤷🏻♀️ My OB didn’t seem concerned, but I also started my GD diet a few days before the appointment, and I’m worried I’m not eating enough carbs and that she’s not growing as much as she should be now.
Rants/Raves?: Though I’ve adjusted pretty well to the GD diet and feel so much better about the diagnosis, timing my meals and snacks is a little challenging, and I definitely feel hungry all the time. Not that it’s anyrhing new, really.
How are you feeling?: Still a little worried about the GD diagnosis, because of the complications that can come from it, especially for baby girl if it isn’t monitored well. Again, I’ll feel better once I start monitoring. Also, TW, someone posted in another app of mine about a third trimester loss, and that’s not helping my anxiety!
GTKY: What's your strangest unpopular opinion, or the one you get the most grief over?: I totally have one, but can’t think of it right now, lol. Total pregnancy brain. 🤦🏻♀️
Baby is the size of a(n): asparagus
Any appointments? Questions?: had appt today. Measuring a little big, but doc wasn’t concerned.
Rants/Raves?: nursery is 90% done, we decided on a name, and I had an overly generous baby sprinkle this past weekend and another this coming weeekend. I’m getting spoiled and I’m so ready to soil him!
How are you feeling?: large and in charge!
GTKY: What's your strangest unpopular opinion, or the one you get the most grief over? Running for hours early in the morning is a great way to start a Saturday!
Baby is the size of a(n): Acorn Squash and weighs as much as trumpet (some of these comparisons seem off? Lol)
Any appointments? Questions?: Chiropractor today, 30 week appointment next week.
Question: I’m a FTM. I haven’t had an ultrasound since 20 weeks, will I not have another ultrasound? Just to see progress?? I’m doing a 4D ultrasound anyway.
Rants/Raves?: nothing to really rant about. I’m just ready to see baby!
How are you feeling?: Not bad actually; I work 12 hour shifts, on my feet all day, so I have some aches but overall. I feel fine.
GTKY: What's your strangest unpopular opinion, or the one you get the most grief over? I’m sure I have many unpopular opinions but nothing is coming to mind right now.
Baby is the size of a(n): eggplant
Any appointments? Questions?: Growth scan Friday, OB check up 4/22
Rants/Raves?: third trimester here I am
How are you feeling?: I second the large and in charge...with some aches and pains and random exhaustion
GTKY: What's your strangest unpopular opinion, or the one you get the most grief over? I don't have a Facebook and will never have one, and my family has been on my case about it for years. I said hey, if you want to connect you can call me and visit with me, DH, and DD lol
Baby is the size of a(n): Eggplant
Any appointments? Questions?: 30 week appointment next week, and getting my TDAP on Friday
Rants/Raves?: People are starting to send us gifts from our baby registry. Seeing the house full up with baby stuff is so exciting! We're getting new carpet in the nursery next week, so once we do I can start putting all these things away.
How are you feeling?: excited!
GTKY: What's your strangest unpopular opinion, or the one you get the most grief over? @lmcw I have a similar issue. I hate "Friends". My husband also hates "Friends". We are the only two people in the world who hate "Friends", which is probably why we are together.
Baby is the size of a(n): i actually looked it up! i'm a zucchini
Any appointments? Questions?: Had a regular check-up this past friday. All looked good. Head is down, i guess she's getting ready! I filed out my paperwork for my breastpump, this time around I'm getting a Spectra.
Rants/Raves?: My dog ate some raisins by accident. Had to rush him to the Animal ER, they got him to vomit, out came 11 raisins, that could have killed him!
How are you feeling?: Feeling huge! I'm looking forward with trying to get back in shape after baby is born. We're getting a treadmill when the basement is finished, this should definitely motivate me more compared to when DD was born.
GTKY: What's your strangest unpopular opinion, or the one you get the most grief over? I don't like Game of Thrones. I find it too violent, and the characters annoy me.
Baby is the size of a(n): acorn squash or weighs as much as a trumpet
Any appointments? Questions?: Monday for my GD test.. starting to freak out a little about how quickly she is going to be here.
Rants/Raves?: Rant: I really just need my 2 yr old to sleep the whole night! We moved him into his big boy bed too early thinking it would be easier to adjust a few months before new baby and now we are paying the price. lol. I have a sleep training clock in my cart on Amazon to hopefully help. Rave: I think we are finally narrowing down the name.
How are you feeling?: I feel better than I have the entire pregnancy which is a nice feeling. Now if I could just get a few nights of decent sleep :-)
GTKY: What's your strangest unpopular opinion, or the one you get the most grief over? apart from the different shows everyone mentioned I can't think of anything off of the top of my head. lol
